Galapagos Rift Volcano is located between the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador. It lies on an oceanic spreading ridge between the Cocos plate and the Nazca plate.

The hydrothermal vents were discovered in 1977 and was correlated with a 1972 earthquake swarm which indicated previous eruptive activity.
